ED/PC Specialist Recommendation Please

Hi All,

I love the forums, and have learned a great deal during my research process.

I am ready to order a MY2015 3er for ED pick up in early September. Would you mind recommending someone who specializes in ED/PC who is known for having good customer service, smooth processing, and the best pricing? I'm in Atlanta and understand I can deal with someone out of state.

Are there any pros/cons dealing with someone in state vs out of state?

Does pricing vary when dealing with different ED specialized firms/dealers?

Thanks to those who can help.

ED/PC Specialist Recommendation Please

I went with mark carvahallo at JMK BMW in NJ. Some of the other "recommended" ^^^ ED specialists didn't bother to call me back. Mark was great and we will be using him again in a few years. It makes no difference where the Dealer/CA is located. Everything can be done over the phone and by email. Good luck!

Yes, you are in luck. Just for you, Adrian is local. I did my first ED with him in 2008, and we are working on one for this Summer. Go with an experienced pro for a smooth ED experience.

Ok then, 3 out of 4 for Adrian....I'll contact him and get a quote. That was easy.

I'll report back once some things solidify.

Thanks.

I met with Adrian today. He seems to be a great guy who knows his stuff. I have a good looking quote for a 335i M-Sport......now just have to wait until MY2015s can be ordered. I'm shooting for early Sept ED.

Do you mind sharing what kind of deal you were able to get. Looking at ordering a 2015 and curious about the pricing/deals/incentives.

Thanks.

Funny - I'm seriously considering doing that this month if my wife can't take time off to go with me to the PC.

I used Adrian, and will use him again, and in all that - have never met the guy

@Adrian -> M3 is back on the website. Save me an allocation slot for 1.5 years from now

I did it with a friend. We flew down from Philadelphia. Drove all the way back.

And in true testament to my Climb to the Clouds training - we did the drive back in one shot, right after doing all of the school fun

You're going to love European Delivery. It didn't work out for me with the F30, but my wife and I did it back in '07 with the E92. I suggest spending lots of time over in the ED forum. You'll find lots of good info and tips over there.

Question

For those of us in the midwest, has anyone spoken to Irv Robinson recently? I called him yesterday at Motorwerks and he's "no longer with the company". Irv was great when I did my ED last year...no pressure, zero attempts to upsell or be sneaky about anything...very different from any other experience I've ever had with a car dealer.

Funny...I was dealing with Irv as well and tried to reach him last week...which is why I created this thread. I just noticed a Linkedin update from him. Check there. But Adrian can take care of you as well. Good luck.
